Volunteers Helping Trees Worldwide

This morning, I came across this quote online: “Trees are the earth’s endless effort to speak to the listening heaven.” That got me to thinking about how much volunteers help to care for trees in their local communities.  In Joplin, Missouri, volunteers are helping to water trees in the city, according to this article from FourstatesHomepage.com.   On the other side of the globe, in India, this story from The Times of India about volunteers removing nails that were left in trees when advertisement signs were hung there and them removed. And in Australia, volunteers in this story from Port Macquarie News helped to plant trees during Port Macquarie Landcare’s National Tree Day celebration.

More information about the Joplin initiative is here. And the Port Macquarie Landcare Group has a webiste, linked here.
